Abstract The focus of this paper is to present a comparative study of students' perceptions on project-oriented design based learning in engineering education. The paper is part of a continuing research process towards the development of a framework for the new Deakin engineering learning and teaching model, Project Oriented Design Based Learning (PODBL). PURPOSE The undergraduate engineering students perceptions from different levels of engineering discipline helps the School of Engineering, Deakin University to practice and enhance a design based learning approach across its curriculum. The students' expectations of learning and staff requirements of teaching can be balanced through these perceptions. DESIGN/METHOD A paper-based survey is designed and given to more than 100 students in different levels of undergraduate engineering students at Deakin. The qualitative and quantitative analysis of this survey gives a comparative study of senior year (2nd, 3rd and 4th year) students perceptions about Design Based Learning (DBL) approach in the year 2012 and 2013.
